Sorry if this is the wrong place to post in, but since this post has much to do with mathematics, and a positive reply relies on maximum viewership, I reasoned it would be best to post here on General Math.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a math major and was wondering what to do over this summer, since I'm not going for any internships/have any fixated family agenda. I was thinking of working out a book, like Spivak, or work on a math-related project. In fact, some time back here on PF, I had posted a thread "Project-Mathematics of Crime-fighting" where Stephen Tashi, Vargo and others had given me very interesting ideas to work on. Sadly, that didn't turn out as expected. The reason was myself; I got demotivated rather quickly (feeling rather ashamed about it). Initially, I was enthusiastic, but when it came to researching the concepts, and working out the math, I guess the lack of someone to spark off the ideas with, and share my thoughts, eventually put me off.

So, in order to not repeat the same mistake again, and to do something fun this summer, I'm looking for a study/project-mate; so that can bounce off our ideas and intuition, and learn something new in the process. I'm open to doing anything, as long it's interesting and challenging math that we'd both be comfortable with. Collaboration would be purely online, through email/other means which can be discussed. The stipulated time period would be May 20th - July 20th, but I guess that can be discussed as well.

The only factor I'm looking for, is an interest towards mathematics/analyzing stuff mathematically. Provided that, I don't think it'll be that hard to find something to work on, that's interesting for both of us.

A grander idea would have been to build a small online team of 5-6 members, but I guess that's asking for much. So, anyone up for it?
